“What if you’re having a tough day and you manage to get out of bed? That’s worth celebrating.”

In today’s episode Paballo Rampa gives us a peek inside her journey to healing from the Strong Black Woman Syndrome.

She paints us a picture of how she spent years dismantling the label that had been thrust upon her and how she is now showing herself love and compassion and creating boundaries that honor who she was created to be.

Paballo is adamanat about teaching others how to treat her by showing the world how she consistently and deliberately celebrates herself.

Tap in sis because she goes on to take us inside her journey to healing from the ancestral trauma that was contributing to the way she was living life.

Cultivate a daily practice of nurturing yourself with
Nurture Yourself Bingo

Nurturing yourself does not have to be difficult, but it does need to be consistent, so why not make it fun.
Nurture Yourself Bingo is divided into five categories – one category per card. Each category has twenty-four activities to support you in a daily practice of nurturing yourself. All you need to do to get started is print the cards, laminate them, and start nurturing yourself.

Do one activity daily, marking a X in the squares as you go until you get bingo. Once you get bingo, do something to celebrate yourself. If you get bingo on more than one card at the same time, up the celebration. Alternatively, you can work on one card at a time and/or do more than one activity a day. It’s your practice, do what feels right for you. Whatever you decide, we’ve got FIVE CATEGORIES & 124 WAYS for you to do it.

Come be our guest on the podcast.
